PRAM + Support
Pram are Sam Owen, Matt Eaton, Max Simpson and Harry Dawes, a work as a predominantly instrumental project with an increased interest in film and site-specific work. They once again signed to Domino Records to release new album ‘Across The Meridian’ last summer.
Peers and contemporaries of the likes of Stereolab and Broadcast, Pram’s restless groove encircles early Rough Trade innovators The Raincoats, astro jazz, sci-fi soundtracks, creepy Victoriana, tropical analogue and tumbledown funk.
“This time they sound closer to a particularly strange Portishead, with a gentle, child-like vocal from Sam Owen recalling the weirder side of English Folk Music (eg The Wicker Man) and the late Trish Keenan from Broadcast.. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy this album” – Soundblab
“one of the most original English ‘alternative’ bands of yesteryear.. variously classified as post-rock, prog-rock, lounge-core and ‘cinematic krautrock’, retro-minded pop with over nine albums and a fifteen year career. They perfected a wonderfully insular sound.. B-movie scores, vintage synthesizers – putting them in the same league as Stereolab and Broadcast” – Tiny Mixtapes
Following the release of their first album in 11 years, Across The Meridian, Pram now share their self-directed video for the track ‘Shadow in Twilight’. Watch the video now HERE. The video premiered at this year’s Flatpack Film festival and features choreography from the professional dance troop, Danzia, whose faceless human figures align with the stars in an emotive piece of performing art that visually reflects the bitter feeling of loneliness.
